I have a 2 gallon tank sprayer. Is this enough water to mix a 3 oz packet?

Directions indicate that one 3 oz packet treats 5000 sq ft of lawn but the mix rate is 1 to 2 gallons of water per 1000 sq ft. Assuming that I should not cut open the water soluble packet, I would need a larger (10 gallon) sprayer?

Answer:

It depends on the type of disease you are controlling.  The label actually states for most diseases that you apply .6 oz of Armada per 1000 square feet.  If you mix 3 oz in 2 gallons of water, then that 3 oz mixture should be applied over 5000 square feet, which works out to be about a quart and a half per 1000 square feet.  After application, you can water in the product into the lawn to help it move into the thatch layer.  This would be the equivalent of spraying 5000 square feet with 10 gallons of water.
